Church History

It was founded in 1662. It was destroyed by enemy action in 1940 and its 1959 replacement was succeeded in 1997 by a new chapel.

Unitarians believe in the Unity or unipersonality of God, as opposed to the doctrine of the Trinity - hence the name 'Unitarian'. Unitarianism only became legal in 1813 but was particularly influential in the 19th century.
